490 Primordial Research Institute Headquarters (2)
Secretary General Blacksky continued flying with Xu Jingming as he said, “Mr. Yang’s strength is ranked in the top ten of the Primordial Research Institute’s Lv. 10 Origin lifeforms! If he were placed in any advanced cosmic civilization, he could easily be conferred the title of king. His strength alone… can surpass an intermediate civilization.”
“A single person dominating an intermediate civilization?” Xu Jingming was stunned.
“It’s very normal,” Secretary General Blacksky commented. “You still don’t know much about the strength of a Lv. 10 Origin lifeform. You just need to know that Origin Force provides all kinds of possibilities. With Origin Force, you can create any technological weapon or even use some cosmic natural phenomena. Once you become an official member, you can read up more. You’ll understand how terrifying a Lv. 10 Origin lifeform is.”
Xu Jingming nodded.
He had heard that Lv. 9 Origin lifeforms were only beginning to study Origin Force. As time passed, their strength varied. However, those who could reach Lv. 10 had very high attainments in Origin Force, so their means were naturally unfathomable.
But Xu Jingming found it unbelievable that Mr. Yang could lord over an intermediate cosmic civilization alone.
“There are many people stronger than Mr. Yang,” Secretary General Blacksky said. “The person I’m bringing you to meet is Deputy Dean Redmond, second only to the dean of the Primordial Research Institute.”
Xu Jingming nodded.
Redmond was too famous. After becoming a peripheral member of the Primordial Research Institute, he learned some things about Redmond.
“There are seven cosmic legends in the current cosmic human race, and Deputy Dean Redmond is undoubtedly number one,” Secretary General Blacksky stated. “He became a cosmic legend 10,000 years after cultivating the evolutionary method. In my opinion, he has a 90% chance of becoming a Paramount realm expert.”
“There’s a chance of failure?” Xu Jingming was puzzled. “He can’t break through even after 100,000 years?”
“There are many thresholds to reach the Paramount realm. Any one threshold that can’t be crossed will result in failure,” Secretary General Blacksky explained. “However, Deputy Dean Redmond won’t take long. After all, he’s the closest to the Paramount realm.”
Xu Jingming nodded.
This was Tejano’s father—an existence second only to the Paramount realm in this era, an existence with a high chance of reaching the Paramount realm!
As the two spoke, they flew to a building.
Secretary General Blacksky brought Xu Jingming to the door. The door was open, and there were no obstructions.
Secretary General Blacksky stood in front of the door and gently knocked.
“Please come in.” A gentle voice sounded.
Xu Jingming observed carefully.
There were no servants or smart bots in the entire building. It was empty.
“Follow me.” Secretary General Blacksky led Xu Jingming up the stairs to a room.
Xu Jingming immediately saw a wide, silver-gray, and short-haired man sitting at the table. He had a wide, fat head, and from his appearance, one could tell that he resembled Tejano. Tejano was thinner, and Deputy Dean Redmond was wider and fatter.
Deputy Dean Redmond was still focused on the information in front of him. Only then did he look up at Secretary General Blacksky and Xu Jingming and smile. “You’re Xu Jingming? I’ve long heard of your name. Have a seat, both of you.”
“Deputy Dean Redmond.” Xu Jingming bowed humbly and respectfully before sitting down.
Secretary General Blacksky casually crossed his legs, picked up a fruit beside him, and ate it before throwing one to Xu Jingming.
Xu Jingming placed the fruit on the table beside him.
“Very impressive. I became an Origin lifeform after cultivating the evolutionary method for 55 years, but you did it in 31 years,” Redmond praised. “You’re better than me.”
“Becoming an Origin lifeform is only the beginning. It’s much harder after becoming an Origin lifeform,” Xu Jingming said.
He didn’t feel proud at all when facing Deputy Dean Redmond. After all, the other party’s achievements were too high.
Becoming a cosmic legend in 10,000 years? Any Origin lifeform would find it out of reach.
From the looks of it, it was already impressive for him to become a cosmic legend in his life. The higher his strength, the more he knew, and the more he understood the difficulty of the evolutionary path.
“Very humble.” Redmond gazed at Xu Jingming with interest. “Speaking of which, we’re quite fated. My son is muddle-headed and doesn’t know what he wants in life, so I got him to take a look at the hardships of those emerging civilizations. However, who would’ve thought that he would be assigned to Earth and get to know you?”
“Tejano has been very helpful to both Earth and me,” Xu Jingming said.
“He’s quite kind, but he’s willful,” Redmond said. “When he’s willful in the future, help me help him. With his character, he will unknowingly offend some people.”
“He has helped me a lot, so it’s only right to help him,” Xu Jingming replied.
Although he had great personal authority and influence, he had to follow the Cosmic Human Alliance’s rules, so he was restrained in many ways. With Xu Jingming’s potential, his achievements in the future would definitely be extraordinary. He felt at ease to have another person helping him.
“Sometimes, it’s good to be willful,” Secretary General Blacksky commented. “That’s the only way to be happy.”
Redmond smiled and nodded. “Yeah, although he appears a little naive and silly, it’s a good thing.”
Xu Jingming listened. He could sense that Redmond cared a lot about Tejano.
“After breaking through to become an Origin lifeform, you will naturally be promoted from a peripheral member to an official member,” Redmond said. “I’ll make arrangements and will immediately finish up the paperwork. Soon, your identity information will be updated, and your personal privileges will change.”
Xu Jingming nodded. “Thank you, Deputy Dean.”
“Every official member enjoys this,” Redmond said. “Oh right, your identity will be officially announced after you become an official member.”
“Officially announced?” Xu Jingming became a little nervous. After all, he had kept it a secret for so many years.
Earth’s civilization was going to know? His wife and daughter were going to know?
The troubles of happiness.
“You don’t have to worry about your safety,” Redmond said. “Since the Primordial Research Institute will publicize the information of every official member, it is naturally confident in ensuring your safety.”
“Okay.” Xu Jingming nodded.
“Then, according to the standard operating procedures, your identity will be updated with the Oohook Star Alliance,” Redmond said. “After all, you are nominally affiliated with the Oohook Star Alliance. The Oohook Star Alliance will officially reveal your identity to the entire universe.”
“Alright, sorry to trouble you, Deputy Dean.” Xu Jingming nodded.
“Then, I’ll sign and inform the Oohook Star Alliance.” Redmond tapped the projection gently, and the AI had already produced a document regarding Xu Jingming’s identity.
After Redmond signed it, the document was sent to the Oohook Star Alliance.
The Oohook Star Alliance would also face a pleasant surprise.
“The Oohook Star Alliance will probably be very excited to have an Origin lifeform like you.” Secretary General Blacksky smiled. “This isn’t just a surprise for Earth’s civilization, but for the entire Oohook Star Alliance.”
“Let’s go. We’ll meet the dean now.” Redmond got up. “The dean hasn’t seen anyone for years; he usually leaves the research institute’s matters to me. This time, he specified to meet you one-on-one.”
“Dean?” Xu Jingming got up.
After all, he was meeting the creator of ‘Primordial Star Conjecture,’ one of the three greatest Paramount realms of the cosmic human race. After learning this strongest legacy, Xu Jingming understood the dean’s greatness.
Redmond immediately led Xu Jingming to visit the dean.
